Thanks, Ray! I find myself liking the new badges more than I realized I would. Easy to see levels! In fact, I quickly realized I need to bump my Acknowledger level up. According to these badges, I have started 51+ new discussions but only marked 5-9 of them “answered”!

Where can I filter for a list of discussions that I, myself, have posted?

the easiest way is to go to the homepage and search for your name then filter by discussions on the side!

Appreciate the new look of the badges. Really helpful to see what level you're on at a glance.

We are also updating the ninja badges too, expect to see those tomorrow. :-)

Can't wait!! The others look great! Great job, @Crystal Bruce!
